Thai Garden is always dependable to have great, fresh food prepared with fresh spices and herbs, or you can cook on the grill at your own table (on the table top) and take your time, enjoying wine, beer or any beverage, cooking your own meat, vege's -- all at the same time, or extending the meal and cooking a little...

I have eaten here several times over the last 5 years and the food is always tasty, reasonably priced and quick out of the kitchen. The service is efficient. This restaurant is a sweet local gem. Go and enjoy.

Had a really nice meal at this Thai restaurant while travelling on business. Went safe and ordered the Phad Thai, but is was very good and had a very fresh taste to it. The appetisers were good as well. If you are staying at the hotel nearby this is a solid choice for dinner.

I do it every time.....first meal in the US for a few months and I forget how big the portions are. I ordered the small Tom Yum soup and it was nice though it was in a huge bowl, completely full. The chicken sate was great....expecting 3 but got 5. Shrimp rice paper rolls good also, fresh and crunchy. Lovely... More

We were staying at a hotel close by, and didn't want to take our car, so we looked around the hotel and choose this restaurant since we saw asian people having dinner here. Everything was delicious!!! Different that we usually find in other thai restaurants. Loved it

This place has great choices in Thai food. It's always consistent though sometimes the atmosphere is loud. More than once I've asked to have the music lowered or changed to a different genre. I love the food but don't want to eat it feeling strained about the music they have running loudly in the background. I really wish they would... More

Just enjoyed lunch with son at his recommendation. Wow. Impressed with the food choices, taste and quality. Crying Tiger was a "10" in my book for sure (seared beef with lime) after excellent rice-noodle soup was MORE than most lunch portions in quantity and taste. Guess for California the price was reasonable (bill was $45 for 4) and definitely for... More

I know that this place is rated really high as one of the best plcaes to eat Thai food in OC but i have to disagree. My wife and I have what we usually have--Pad Sew Ew beef and shrimp fried rice. The food was good but it reheated horribly. We came to this place because a lot of other... More

We had heard that this was a great restaurant and decided to try it out. We ordered Yellow Curry, Panang Curry, Crying Tiger and Curried Rice. Every dish was wonderful! We ordered at a level 3 spiciness which wasn't too mild nor too hot. There was a delectable flavor in everything. Even though we are curry lovers, the Crying Tiger... More
